The Wine

Winemaker's Notes
  • Poggio Antico’s Brunello di Montalcino is typically deep and intense ruby red in color.
  • The bouquet is well developed and persistent, and increases in intensity with further bottle aging. It has a very clean nose, with hints of blackberry and licorice.
  • In the mouth it is rounded and concentrated, with great vitality, yet elegant and harmonious, thanks to the particularly sweet tannins.
  • It has a very long finish and ages gracefully under proper conditions.
